Consolidated Contractors bids low for Kuwait central bank
Published: 07 February 2008

Athens-based Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) is understood to be low bidder for the contract to build the new Central Bank of Kuwait headquarters, following the submission of revised commercial proposals.

Two other bidding groups are competing for the contract. They are China State Construction Engineering Corporation with the local Mohamed Abdulmohsin Kharafi & Sons; and Paul Y Engineering Group of Hong Kong with the local Ahmadiah Contracting & Trading Company

The Central Bank is due to make an award soon. As the project does not fall under the auspices of the Central Tenders Committee the low bidder is not necessarily the frontrunner for the contract.

At 240-metres-high and on a plot of 26,000 square metres, the estimated KD110m ($392m) project will be one of the largest civil construction schemes ever awarded in the state.

The northern-front will be built as a pyramidal steel structure with a curtain wall of aluminium and glass. The south western and south eastern fronts will be built of concrete covered by marble or granite. On top of the triangular tower, there will be a viewing area with glazed walls and ceilings.

Site preparation work is being carried out by Kharafi. A US/local team of HOK and Pan Arab Consulting Engineers is the design consultant. The project manager is the US' DMJM International with the local Project Management & Control.
